Remember when the Democrats used to be the party of ‘working men and women?’
We do. It really wasn’t that long ago when Democrats were the party of labor — any and all labor.
No, today the Democrat Party is the party of some labor…woke labor.
If you’ve got the ‘wrong’ job — say, in the fossil fuel industry — then those jobs don’t count.
Climate change, you see, is far more important — a “crisis” we’re told. And as such, it’s okay if those jobs are eliminated via executive fiat by a man who’s never worked a day in his adult life in the private sector.
Never mind that we’re still in a pandemic. Never mind that the labor market is still reeling from (mostly Democrat-led) COVID-19 lockdowns.
And never mind that Joe Biden obviously lied his a** off when he promised to be ‘all about jobs’ when he was running his basement campaign.
He and his handlers obviously didn’t mean it.
Worse, now the lunatic fringe of his party (which is pretty much all Democrats these days) are even celebrating the fact that tens of thousands of Americans have already lost their jobs thanks to the cancellation of the Keystone XL pipeline, fracking bans, and exploration bans on federal lands (that American taxpayers really own).
On Wednesday's broadcast of CNN's 'Cuomo Primetime,' Washington Gov. Jay Inslee (D) praised President Joe Biden's climate actions and addressed criticisms that they'll hurt jobs by stating that fighting climate change helps create jobs and that 'We do not want to shackle our children to the dead weight of jobs that aren't going to exist 30 years from now.'
'[H]ow do you finesse the aspect of the other party…on this, they've got a great angle. Every time you do something that's green, you're taking green out of their pockets. Keystone Pipeline, costing jobs. No more drilling, costing jobs. Jobs matter more to people than the environment when you look at polls. How do you bridge that gap?'
Inslee responded that fighting climate change doesn't hurt jobs, and that the opposite is true.
He added, 'Listen, the other side wants to shackle people to a past of an area of declining jobs. This is a reality. We do not want to shackle our children to the dead weight of jobs that aren't going to exist 30 years from now. We want to give our kids the jobs that are growing, and this is — the number one job creation engine is clean energy. And I couldn't be more tickled. Look, this is a hallelujah moment from my view. We have crossed the desert of denial and deception about climate change and we have a president who understands how to create jobs and he's doing that big-time today.'
First and foremost: Biden has destroyed jobs based on a hoax. There is no such thing as ‘human-caused climate change.’ In fact, there isn’t any ’emissions-caused climate change.’
The climate….changes. It always has and as long as Earth exists, it always will.
Beyond that fact, the arrogance, the hubris, the disconnect, the lack of self-awareness of these windbag left-wing elitists is astounding, insulting, and angering beyond belief.
It is also sowing the seeds of perpetual unrest.
Over the next 15-20 years, according to some estimates, nearly half of all jobs that exist right now will be gone, thanks to automation.
What will the liberal elites do then? How will they cope with 40 percent unemployment?
Destroying livelihoods based on a demonstrable hoax isn’t going to help the situation, either.
Is Joe Biden's Inflation Going to Destroy our Economy and Break the Back of Consumers?
Are backed-up supply chains adding to the dilemma of bad policy?
You can't afford NOT to be prepared for the coming financial reset
